England Cricket Captain Joe Root has been widely praised for telling an opponent not to use the word 'gay' as an insult.

The Yorkshire player was heard through an on-pitch microphone telling West Indies opponent Shannon Gabriel: "There's nothing wrong with being gay."

It is unclear what Gabriel had initially said, but Root added: "Don't use it as an insult".

The teams were playing in Saint Lucia, where anyone found guilty of being in a homosexual relationship can face up to 10 years in prison.
